What are we looking for?

Are you passionate about arts and culture? Interested in making theatre accessible to people from all walks of life? Do you consider yourself a Fool? Then we have the role for you!

There are currently three positions available on our board of directors.

We’re seeking individuals with backgrounds in the following professional fields: Legal, Finance, Marketing and Communications, and Donor Development.

Time commitment:

  • Nine board meetings per calendar year from September to June
  • One Annual General Meeting per calendar year in April
  • The option of joining various committees of interest to individual members, such as: legal, marketing and communications, finance and audit, and donor development
  • The opportunity to volunteer at various fundraising events throughout the year

Why should you become a fool?

Accessible application process: no donation or financial contributions are required to join our board. Instead we ask members to donate their time and passion to help our organization grow.

Make a positive change in an Ottawa Theatrical Institution: now in our 30th year, we reach over 10,000 patrons and employ up to 20 artists and administrators a year. With your help we can continue to do so for another 30 years.

Professional Development Opportunities: each year we offer a modest budget for board members to undertake professional development opportunities that relate to their involvement with the organization.

I want to be a Fool!

Awesome! We’d be more than happy to chat with you further about getting involved in our organization.

Send your resume and a brief note about why you’d like to join our board to our Board Chair, Kathryn McLaren.
